Solid Gemstone slabs and blocks

Solid gemstone slabs and blocks are pieces of gemstone cut and polished from a single block of stone. As gemstones are a rare material, solid tiles size and thickness is limited by the rough material dimensions. The maximum size of a solid tile normally is 4" x 4". The maximum size for Malachite is 2" x 2". Finished edges are available. Tile edges are usually chamfered (beveled) slightly to avoid chipping during installation and use.


For example a solid block of Amethyst which is shown in the photo bellow is cut and polished to make solid Amethyst block.
